Have Yourselves A Merry Little Jarvis

Every once in awhile, we’ll stick our heads outside that lovely bunker known as The Nest and casually take the psychic temperature, so as to confirm, as our man Jarvis Cocker maintains: “… are still running the world”. Which brings us to our sermon of the day. Disgusted with recent election results, a campaign was born, (#jarvis4xmas) to attempt to propel Jarvis Cocker’s 2006 Rough Trade Records single “Running The World” to the top of the UK charts at Christmas. 

Since both the US and UK have been engaged in the most mind-bending contest of “hold my beer…”, we’ll sign off on this one, happily noting that all proceeds will go to Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity. The single can be streamed and/or downloaded at Apple Music, Spotify, and 7digital. Merry Christmas to you all, each and every one!
